  1. Advanced Wake Turbulence Modeling for Naval CFD Applications

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N15AT002

    Predicting the high Reynolds number viscous turbulent flow around realistic aircraft, rotorcraft and ship geometries with CFD is time consuming and computationally expensive, with the number of cells required to resolve the flow driving the computational cost. Even with modern CFD methods, the cost of adequately resolved solutions is prohibitive for most engineering tasks. The team of Continuum ...

  3. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  4. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  6. Electro-Optic Transmissive Scanner

    SBC: I-CORE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N17AT001

    Electro-Optic transmissive scanner based on specific liquid crystal technology is proposed. Using a specific liquid crystal technology, light weight, thin thickness, low power consumption, beam steering is realized without using any mechanical moving parts. No mechanical parts provide strong durability to vibrational environment. For large steering performance, specific liquid crystal materials an ...

  7. Electro-Optic Transmissive Scanner

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT001

    Optical beam steering has a wide range of applications in optical memory, optical communication, and free-space interconnections. A variety of techniques to implement optical beam steering have been reported by means of electromechanical, acousto-optic, and electro-optic effects. Optical phased-array beam steering implemented in lithium tantalate, lithium niobate crystals, and liquid crystal were ...

  8. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N09T004

    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  9. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...

  10. High Resolution Measurement of the Flow Velocity Field in a Supersonic Jet Plume

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N11AT004

    Modern supersonic jet aircraft engines produce a high amplitude noise field with complicated characteristics due to turbulent behaviors of the hot jet. Researchers need better understanding of the turbulent structures in the jet plume to develop treatments to engines that might reduce the noise emissions. A significant obstacle to making these simulations practical and realistic for engine design ...
